starts on the statistics of the accepted students from the University of Southern California Doctor of Pharmacy program 2009. 460 students were offered interviews over the pool of candidates in 2000. 240 students accepted (11 students out-of-state schools) and the expected class size be in 2009 190. To see the USC offer admission to students given the opportunity until the full requirements of the TAP program (these students are a big other applicants for the available places).
obtaining Bachelor & # 39; s current level of admissions at USC. The minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 (the average GPA of accepted students with a 3.60). Since USC does not require taking into account the PCAT, other selection criteria are weighed more (GPA, interview performance, extracurricular activities, personal statements, etc.).
The application process is very important to note that the University of Southern California invited to give interviews on a rolling basis, so it is important to turn the PharmCAS application and supplementary application as soon as possible. The deadlines for both the beginning of November, but I highly recommend that you turn both no latter than at the beginning of August (I turned in my application to mid-July, just 1.5 months after the application was made available).
The interview then questions the current pharmacy student and a faculty member. Think of it as more of a conversation where you can ask questions to both. When you first arrive in the interview session, it receives more current pharmacy students who have a great work before calming down of the interview. Take the opportunity to ask questions and heated verbal communication skills. Do not worry that much of the "paper", as this is just a test to see how well you take notes off a random article you read. Be sure to follow all directions provided to you as it is a test to see how well they pay attention to detail.
